A spring in my step!

What a beautiful day!
I enjoyed walking my son to school today so much.
It was sunny and warm, no need for coats.
I could hear children laughing and chattering and lawn mowers in the distance (one of my favourite spring/summer sounds)
And such a beautiful scent of cut grass and flowers i could smell.
Everyone is so more cheerful on days like this, greeting with smiles and hellos as we walk past.
I have washing on the line and the playroom is filled with sunlight.
How lovely!
While i blog, i am eating the most delicious cake in the world!! Caramel shortbread that my hubby bought me yesterday to have today from Costas.

I love that the littlest one has started to play with the buggy i played with as a child, and you can just about see the wicker chair in the playhouse that i had as a baby too.

I hope you are all having a beautiful day!! Enjoy your week, love and hugs LissyLou xx

It is a lovely day today, feels very springlike to me :) I love caramel shortbread, I would love to make some but it looks a bit of a fiddle to me! X

It's a great day here today too, warm and sunny. The washing is on the line, great and I'm off to make a chocolate cake.
Take care.

What beautiful photographs and a happy post :)

We have the same little wicker chair here too though is in need of some TLC as the seat keeps coming out, I do love it

The sun certainly lifts the spirits

Take Care

Oh my god, I think I have that exact same plate with the roses on! (it belonged to my Nana, I have a cup and saucer too!)- and caramel shortcake too - love it! Wasn't it just a gorgeous day? So lovely to go out without all the layers on!:)

I once made caramel shortbread yeasrs and years ago and don't think I have eaten any since, though it is delicious. Yes it has been a most beautiful day today. Let's hope this weather lasts.

Another lovely day today to keeps the spirits raised! You're so lucky to have things from your childhood, my parensts went backrupt in the '80's and a lot of it when to auction sadly. Still happy days now thank goodness with love Salx

What did I tell you about those sunny days?!! It has been so lovely to linger outside hasn't it. Love the dolly pushchair!

Thanks for your message about my little fabric hearts and I know what you mean about the 'sewed up heart' - I did exactly the same thing!! Thought I'd done a really good job on the sewing and then realised I couldn't fill it or turn it the right way out. Duh!

I loved your post about the Daffodils - makes me determined to dig out my flower fairies book when I get home. And as you say doesn't the lovely weather make a difference :-)

Love Charlotte
